HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - There are 10 new officers in the Horry County Police Department.

Horry County Police Chief Joseph Hill swore in the new officers Wednesday afternoon at the Conway Airport meeting room.

There, Hill made a promise to both the new officers and the community.

“Officers will go into harm's way; it's part of their role to protect their community,” Hill said. “But I promise you as leaders in this organization, we will outfit them with training, equipment and support to make sure they return safely each and every night.”

Hill added that swearing in 10 new members is unusual, as they typically only get five.

  • Patrolman Chad Page, previously with the Marion Police Department for two years, West Precinct
